Anotácia knihy

Entomologist Justin O. Schmidt is on a mission. Some say its a brave exploration, others shake their heads in disbelief. His goal? To compare the impacts of stinging insects on humans, mainly using himself as the gauge.§In The Sting of the Wild, the colorful Dr. Schmidt takes us on a journey inside the lives of stinging insects, seeing the world through their eyes as well as his own. He explains how and why they attack and reveals the powerful punch they can deliver with a small venom gland and a sting, the name for the apparatus that delivers the venom. We learn which insects are the worst to encounter and why some are barely worth considering.§The Sting of the Wild includes the complete Schmidt Sting Pain Index, published here for the first time. In addition to a numerical ranking of the agony of each of the eighty-three stings hes sampled so far (from below 1 to an excruciatingly painful 4), Schmidt describes them in prose worthy of a professional wine critic: Looks deceive. Rich and full-bodied in appearance, but flavorless and Pure, intense, brilliant pain. Like walking over flaming charcoal with a three-inch nail embedded in your heel.§Schmidt explains that, for some insects, stinging is used for hunting: small wasps, for example, can paralyze huge caterpillars and then lay their eggs inside so that their larvae can feast within. Others are used to kill competing insects, even members of their own species. Humans usually experience stings as defensive maneuvers used by insects to protect their nest mates.§With colorful descriptions of each venoms sensation and a story that leaves you tingling with awe, The Sting of the Wilds one-of-a-kind style will fire your imagination.
